I want to promise you that in 2024 (T20 World Cup) in Barbados (venue for the final), under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy, hum Bharat ka jhanda gadenge (we will hoist the Indian flag). Rohit was captaining (in the past in other formats) and he came back for the Afghanistan series, which means we were going to let him continue forward. He (Rohit) has the ability, as I said, we won 10 games in the ODI World Cup. We didn’t win the final, but it’s part and parcel of the game. Whoever plays better, wins.”
